Last week all of our boys wrote the first round of the National Mathematics Olympiad and we look forward to receiving the results of this examination.  We trust that a number of our boys will qualify to write the second round which will be written during the course of next term.

On Wednesday evening I attended our school Subject Music Examination Concert at which all of our Grade 10, 11 and 12 subject music scholars performed.  I was very impressed by the quality of these performances and with the confident manner in which these boys introduced their pieces.

The term 1 academic Mark Order closed on Friday last week and subject teachers are now busy writing their reports.  All boys receive reports at the end of this term and I urge you to spend time discussing your son's report with him because a healthy partnership between the school and you, the parents, is vital in order for your son to achieve to his full potential.

At the Nomads School Golf Team Championship, held on Monday the 2nd March at the Mount Edgecombe Country Club in Durban, the Hilton College A-Team won the event by 19 strokes.  The team will now represent KwaZulu-Natal at the South African High Schools' National Championships in Pretoria in August.  The Hilton College B team was placed in joint 4th position out of the twenty teams entered in this tournament.  We have boys in 6 of the 8 places in the A side and 2 in the B side, giving us 8 of the top 10 spots.  In addition to this, Guy Waterhouse has been invited to play in the SA Boys U19 Golf Championship which will be held in Polokwane from the 6 - 10 April.  I congratulate all of our golfers and their coaches on these outstanding achievements and wish them everything of the best for the remainder of the year.

On Friday evening last week, our 1st XI cricket team concluded their highly successful summer season with another outstanding all-round performance.  They played superbly to win the Inland Sunfoil Night League limited overs cricket competition final against Maritzburg College in fine style.  Following on from their success in the National T20 competition, they have now confirmed their dominance in KZN by also winning this limited over competition.

I was extremely proud of the way in which our boys competed in both hockey and rugby against Westville Boys' High School on Saturday.  Despite their limited preparation for this opening fixture, I felt that our teams played very well and this augurs well for the remainder of the season.

Enjoy the week!
